*15th IEEE International Symposium on Network Computing and Applications
(NCA 2016)*
*Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society, Technical Committee on Distributed

This CFP is available at:



NCA is a successful series of conferences that serves as a large
international forum for presenting and sharing recent results and
technological developments in the fields of Network and Cloud Computing.
NCA, which is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, reaches out to both
researchers and practitioners, and to both academia and industry. The
conference features keynotes, technical presentations and workshops.

Topics of Interest include (but are not limited to) :

- Theory of Network Computing
- High Speed Networks, Protocols and Middleware
- Network Protocol Verification and Validation
- Routing, Load Balancing and Traffic Scheduling Techniques
- System Area Networks (SAN) / Clusters
- Performance Modeling / Quality of Services (QoS) in Network Computing
- Dependable Wide, Local, and System Area Networks
- Network Security
- Web Caching and Switching
- Intrusion-Tolerant Systems
- Scalable and Dependable Servers and Data Centers
- Middleware for Dependable Network Computing
- Platforms for Network Computing
- Autonomic Network Computing
- Network Cloud Computing: Optimizing (Path, Communication, Applications)
- Machine Learning Techniques for Cloud Resources Management
- Self-* (Configuring, Healing, Optimizing, Protecting, Organizing, Aware)
Systems and Networks.
- Secure Cloud Applications and Platforms
- Software Defined Networking (SDN): Principals and Implementation
- Designing Highly-Available and Secure SDN
- Network Functions Virtualization (NFV): Design and Optimization
- Big Data in Clouds for IoT
- Future Internet and Communicating Objects
- Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks (MANETs)
- Sensor Networks
- Fog/Edge Computing
- Energy-Efficient Computation and Communication
- Applications to Real and/or Complex Problems, Practical Experiences and
- Programming Models and Environments for Distributed Systems


The IEEE International Symposium on Network Computing and Applications is
organizing the following workshops:


The topics of interest include (but are not limited to) :
- Dynamically Forming Virtual Organizations
- Adaptive Infrastructure for Cloud Computing
- Dynamic Reconfiguration in the Presence of Anomalies in the Cloud
- Security Protocols in the Cloud Infrastructure
- Homomorphic Encryption


The topics of interest include (but are not limited to) :
- Networked-Driven Multicore Chips
- Interconnection Networks: Fault Tolerance, Scalability and Performance
- Caching and Virtualization in On-Chip Networks for Multicore Chips
- Low Power On-Chip Networks for Multicore Chips


Paper submissions are managed through EasyChair. Submitted manuscripts must
not have been previously published or currently submitted for publication
elsewhere and must be cleared for publication in the NCA Proceedings, which
will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. The manuscript must
be written in English, and must not exceed 8 pages for NCA papers or 4
pages for workshop papers. The submission must be in PDF format.

Instructions for submitting the manuscript are available at www.ieee-nca.org


*Regular Papers*: 8 pages, including all figures, tables, and references.
Up to 2 extra pages may be purchased at $100 (US dollars) per extra page.
*Short Papers*: 4 pages, including all figures, tables, and references. Up
to 1 extra page may be purchased at $100 (US dollars).


Every regular paper accepted by a technical meeting sponsored by the IEEE
Signal Processing Society must have attached to it at least one
registration at the full (member or non-member) rate. Thus, for a
manuscript for which all authors are students, one student author will be
required to register at the full registration rate. For manuscripts where
at least one author is already registered at the full rate, this fulfills
the obligation for up to two (2) papers.

*No-show papers *are defined as papers submitted by authors who
subsequently did not present the paper *in-person* (no videos, no remote
cast will be allowed) at the technical meeting. *Presentations by proxies* are
not allowed, unless explicitly approved before the conference by the
technical co-chairs. No-show papers that were not withdrawn and were
published in the Proceedings must be identified as "No-Show" in the files
submitted to IEEE for further publication (IEEE Xplore). *No-shows will not
be available on IEEE Xplore or other public access IEEE forums*. IEEE will
maintain an archive of no-shows.

Exceptions to this policy will be made by the Technical Program Chair of
the conference only if there is evidence that the no-show occurred because
of unanticipated events beyond the control of the authors, and every option
available to the authors to present the paper was exhausted.

The IEEE strongly discourages changes and, in particular, withdrawals of
papers once submitted and included in the program. To avoid the likelihood
of this, the author is strongly encouraged to get all necessary company
and/or government approvals prior to submitting his/her paper to the

If under any circumstances it becomes necessary for the author to withdraw
or change a paper, IEEE policy dictates that the request to do this must
come directly from the author and not from any third party. IEEE policy
also states that in this case, the author will be held liable for all costs
that are incurred. It would then be up to the author to get reimbursed for
the expense from any third party if he/she feels it is justified. The IEEE
cannot act as a policing entity on behalf of the author in this regard.


The IEEE NCA2016 Program Committee will select* Best Paper* and *Best
Student Paper*. The first author of the Best Student Paper must be a PhD
